I haven't been tracking it exactly, but my general impression from reading the posts in the last few weeks has been that most UR2s have about a 2 week turn around, although there have been several exceptions (shorter and longer).

Went complete yesterday. With all the dings/wls, not feeling too excited... :{

Anyone have any luck submitting an optional essay after the fact? Is Penn generally receptive to additional materials? Their correspondence seems the "coldest" of the schools to which I've applied, so I'm leaning toward no.

What are your stats vis a vis the median? You might as well keep it for a potential WL.

U of C was for me. I emailed Penn adcomms about updating my PS after I realized I sent them the wrong copy, they were ok with that. Tried the same with Chicago a week ago...I don't think I'll be getting a reply.

UR1 : 1/17
